The enhanced SsangYong Rexton is the perfect vehicle for drivers who dream for twin axle caravans and large trailers. You will be also impressed by its towing capability of 3.2 tonne. Therefore the rugged Rexton is capable of tackling both tough tracks and motorway trips with a boat, horses or track day car in tow.

All Rexton models are hard working 4x4 four wheel drives and are powered by an advanced 2.7 litre five cylinder turbo diesel engine.  What is more important is that they deliver a power output of 163bhp (120 kW), and also provide 340Nm (250 lb-ft) of torque from only 1,800rpm.  Having in mind these details, and adding the separate chassis construction, you can be sure that Rexton will tackle the toughest terrain even when fully laden with a heavy trailer.

The numbers of 3.2 tonne braked towing limit and 128kg maximum tow ball weight speak only that this SsangYong is nothing but a real towing champion.

And for every specific taste the Rexton is available in a choice of S and EX trim.  Here we have to say that even the entry level model comes equipped with ABS, EBD and ESP, as well as automatic climate control and seven seats. But if you choose the EX specification, you will get leather upholstery, heated seats and a Mercedes-Benz 5-speed T-Tronic automatic gearbox.

A robust tow bar is available on all models at a competitive option price of £478.
